Caption: A black hole is an object so compact -- usually a collapsed star -- that nothing can escape its gravitational pull. Not even light. In this image, we can see a black hole, but only because it is surrounded by a superheated disc of material, an accretion disc. The massive gravity is also pulling in a nearby gas cloud, top left.
